In the following document we would list the history and the ingredients of the drink that has became famous. Cappuccino is known worldwide because of its delicious and unforgettable taste. We hope you enjoy this presentation that we prepared to let you know about this delicious drink


Cappuccino is an Italian coffee drink prepared with espresso, hotmilk, and steamed-milk foam.
The name Cappuccino comes from the Capuchin friars, possibly referring to the colour of their habits or to the aspect of their tonsured (white) heads, surrounded by a ring of brown hair.
A cappuccino is traditionally served in a porcelain cup, which has far better heat-retention characteristics than glass or paper. The foam on top of the cappuccino acts as aninsulator and helps retain the heat of the liquid, allowing it to stay hotter longer. The foam may have powder (cocoa powder or nutmeg powder) sprinkled on it.

A cappuccino is similar to a caffè latte in that both add frothed milk to espresso, but differs in two respects. Firstly, a cappuccino is traditionally prepared with much less steamed or textured milk than a latte – the latte is claimed tohave been invented as simply a cappuccino with more milk, to suit American tastes. Secondly, cappuccinos feature a distinctive layer of foam on top, which is lesser or absent in lattes. There is some overlap in the usage: a wet cappuccino is virtually the same as a short latte with more foam, while American coffee chains may serve cappuccinos and lattes at identical sizes, distinguishing only bygreater foam in the cappuccino.
In a traditional cappuccino, as served in Europe and artisanal coffee houses in the United States, the total of espresso and milk/foam make up between approximately 150 ml (5 imp fl oz; 5 US fl oz) and 180 ml (6 imp fl oz; 6 US fl oz). US commercial coffee chains more often serve the cappuccino as a 360 ml (13 imp fl oz; 12 US fl oz) drink, sometimes larger.History:
The first espresso machines used to make cappuccino were introduced at the beginning of the 20th Century, with the first patent being filed by Luigi Bezzera of Milan in 1901. The beverage was used in Italy by the early 1900s, and grew in popularity as the large espresso machines in cafés and restaurants were improved during and after World War II, specifically with the introduction of themodern, high-pressure espresso machine by Gaggia in 1948. The cappuccino had developed into its current form by the 1950s.
In the United Kingdom, espresso initially gained popularity in the form of the cappuccino, due to the British custom of drinking coffee with milk, the desire for a longer drink so the café may serve as a destination, and the exotic texture of the beverage.

Sweet like adessert, wakes you up like a good espresso. Cappuccino, the widely known Italian based coffee drink prepared with espresso, hot milk, and foam. While most of us love the rich taste of the beverage, few know of its interesting history. The origin of the word cappuccino dates back over 500 years to the Capuchin order of friars, whom in 1525 played a major role in bringing Catholicism back to ReformationEurope. The order’s name derives from long pointed cowl, or “cappuccino”, derivative of “cappuccio” meaning “hood” in Italian. However, it’s unlikely that the name of the drink derives from the color of robes typically worn by Capuchin monks. While some dictionaries have mentioned such a hypothesis, the actual shade of brown is quite different from the cappuccino we all know today. Generallyregarded as a myth, some believe the beverage was invented by the actual 17th century Capuchin monk, Marco d’Aviano, some time after the battle of Vienna in 1683. Yet no mention of this occurs in his biographies, or any other historical or contemporary account. Rumors of such first started circulating in the Austrian press during the 1983 celebration of the third centennial of the Turkish siege in...
